The chief executive of the HSE Paul Reid has praised the country's young people as the HSE is set to continue operating walk-in vaccination centres due to their "unprecedented success" last weeked. 

Mr Reid said there has been times during the pandemic when young people have come in for "unfair criticism."

"What I witnessed last weekend in walk-in vaccination centres, were younger people, mature beyond their years, with the greater good of society and our health service driving their actions," he said. 

His comments come as it was announced the walk-in vaccination at Mallow GAA Club, Carrigoon is to operate again this weekend.

Anyone aged 16 and over who has not already received a vaccine can attend Mallow GAA Complex on Sunday, August 8 from 11am-3pm.

The clinic will be offering first doses of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine. Second doses will not be available.
